I'm a long time Debian-user, and this is the first time I'm looking to become more actively involved in Debian development. I have been creating a package for MPICH2 for the past 3 revisions, but I have just now uploaded the package to debian-mentors. There are a couple lf lintian warnings but nothing critical. The packages are available at http://mentors.debian.net or at http://torvalds.cs.mtsu.edu/~zach/debian/1.0.1. A more thorough description of the software follows:
I noticed a little typo in README.Debian (``shoudl'' instead of should) and you might want to remove debian/conffiles.ex as it is an example file.
debian/copyright:``It was downloaded from ANL MPICH2 CVS'': Could you please provide the URL to some source code anyway?
debian/control:libstdc++5 and libstdc++5-3.3-dev are both build-essential and so is libgcc1, so you don't have to list those in the build dependencies.
debian/rules: You should delete all commented dh_* lines. Use them or lose them. dh_installinit --name=mpd: Could this clash with ?
This package is distributed under the following license: http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/mpi/mpich2/license.htm
Looks reasonable to me. Kind regards, Philipp Kern Debian Developer  http://packages.debian.org/unstable/sound/mpd
